Well, it has been over an hour and a half, so I'm just wondering where are the images? Was there a delay or something?

Yes, NASA has to wait until the orbiter passes overhead so Phoenix can trasmit the data. The orbiter will then trasmit the data to Earth. They said it would take about an hour and a half after landing until the orbiter is overhead, so things should start happening real soon.

Gives em time to clean it up i s'pose

You're right. That should give them enough time to airbrush out the Martian waving hello and holding a sign saying "welcome to Mars".


LOL! u probably got hitler jesus and the beatles on there waving sos signs,
erm they say it could be 2 hours to get first images, yeh right! theyre going to airbrush almost everything...

A powerful enough radio dish can pick up the actual UHF signal from the lander on the surface of Mars, so if another country wanted to expose NASA's hoax, they could (but they can't expose NASA, since this isn't a hoax, and they can detect Phoenix's signal on Mars).

The photos will be seen by the public LIVE at the exact same time they are downloaded from Mars.

NASA said the parachute took 7 seconds longer to deploy than they had originally planned so the lander did not land exactly where they wanted but it's still well within the zone they were shooting for.

They just made a connection and are now receiving data.

The first photos will be of the lander itself (solar panels, footpads, etc.) so they can determine the health of the spacecraft.

I don't see any ice and the soil does not look moist but I guess it is supposed to be frozen.

Seems the U of A site has the latest --

Phoenix Mars Mission - Gallery

I didn't see anything on the NASA site, but I might have missed them.

I answered this once before in this post:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

The raw images from Spirit and Opportunity are also black and white when first received, but they are eventually converted into "approximate true color images". It will take a little time for the imaging scientists to turn these raw images into color images, but we WILL see approximate true color images eventually.

Thanks for the link. NASA is being horribly slow with getting the pictures on their site.
